LLM Admission Chances


Hello all,

Sorry if I've missed a previous post that would've been instructive, but I was wondering if I could get some general thoughts on admission chances.

My GPA is top-10% at a top-15 law school in the U.S. and am on the law review, which is top 5 in the country.

How's my shot at Oxbridge/LSE? Thanks!

Not an expert, but it seems to me your chances at LSE are fairly high. Oxbridge on the other hand, will be though. I don't know anyone who got in who's not in the top 3% of his cohort. Best of luck with your application!

PS: any reason for you not to apply for a LLM in the US?

Thanks! Will give it a go next year anyway, I guess.

And no particular reason not to apply in the U.S. If I were applying for a more practical reason (i.e. further professional specialization), then NYU's tax program would be one to look at. I guess my real reason is just for the educational experience, and getting a degree abroad would be fun.
